take a gander at the black wire where it connects to chassis/ground...since you fixed the coil and auxiliary components are also not working am going to have to say 'bad ground' if your battery is getting to be five or older (check with the omitted push off dots) on the top of your battery is also going to be short, my diagnosis is that your battery and terminals need to be hosed off and perhaps that auxilliary connection to the red side (little lug, red wire, lollipop with a hole in it) isn't connecting properly~

wire brush all the electrical connections, use plenty of hose water to make sure acid dust ain't gettin' in your eyes~

replace your battery, the new one's aren't made from lead, it's an tin/antimony alloy now~


where do i find the the black wire look like

Your battery has two terminals one red (slightly larger) with a +, and the other negative or black (-) has a clamp that has a bolt, acid fumes are continuously being emitted, and quickly corrode everything...including your eyes so be careful about that and always "Wash" the acid and fumes away by taking to the whole mess with a garden hose (unless you have a cadillac with the battery under the backseat)....electrical stuff needs a complete circuit...Your starter is really really hungry for amperage, and the only way it's going to get that amperage is for a big meaty 1/0 battery cable...and the only way that juice is going to get to the starter is by connecting to the chassis (side of fender, down by the steering components) and same thickness of conductor connecting to the motor block, where the starter motor in conclusion beef up the electrical connections and make sure they are clean, as the evil battery will bring destruction upon anything nearby...including your fingers, eyes, and sense of humor~

you could test your coil pack(s) with an ohm meter-

simply compare them, and test hot to ground resistance~
